Temperature-Controlled Packaging

Phase Change Materials – Game Changer For Temperature-Controlled Packaging

Covid-19 brought global supply chain to its knees. But what about the supply chain to fight the very pandemic? Collection of viral swab samples, diagnostic kits, and later, distribution of COVID-19 vaccines, all need a highly resilient and sustainable temperature-controlled supply chain. With over 70 % of 1.3 billion population still living in villages that are poorly connected to main stream transportation and are spread over a geography of 3.2 million square kilometres, temperature-controlled supply chain is a formidable challenge. Pluss Advanced Technologies, an Indian Innovator, ticks all checkboxes with their patented Phase Change Material (PCM) based temperature-controlled packaging- Celsure®, that is designed to provide over 120 hours of backup against the Indian extreme tropical climate without the risk of freezing the products.
